Resume: Charles A. James


BORN

Newark, N.J., 1954

EDUCATION

B.A. Wesleyan University, 1976. J.D. George Washington University, 1979.

CAREER

Started out at Federal Trade Commission, then joined megafirm Jones, Day, Reavis & Pogue. He has since shuttled between private practice and government service.

POLITICAL STRIPES

James has been a Republican since his 20s. But he has never worked on a campaign and rarely donates to candidates. He isn't part of the D.C. social network and has few close Capitol Hill or White House contacts.

GADGET FREAK

Home in Arlington, Va., is stuffed with state-of-the-art gizmos: PCs, large-screen TVs, stereos, video gear. More of a techie than his predecessors--and can't be without his Palm Pilot.

IDEA OF FUN

Loves barbecues with friends or time spent with his teenage daughter. Watches what he eats--recently lost more than 100 pounds.

CARS HE DRIVES

Takes the Jeep in foul weather but loves his Porsche. Grew up next to a dealership and has been smitten with the sports car ever since.
